Ohliger, John, Ed.
The conduct of a workshop in Adult Basic Education Curriculum Development is discussed. The major objectives of the workshop were: (1) To develop an understanding of what a curriculum is and the processes of curriculum development; (2) To assist persons to develop skills in preparation of curricula in adult basic education; and (3) To develop leadership skills for conducting in-service training programs in curriculum development for other teachers. A total of 113 participants enrolled in the program for a period of three weeks; they were divided into four learning groups. The program consisted of three major activities. These were: (1) presentation by experts in adult basic education and curriculum development, (2) learning activities, including group discussion and program evaluation, and (3) field trips. At the conclusion of the program most participants felt they: (1) Gained a basic understanding of curriculum development in adult basic education; (2) Developed a better understanding of the adult learner; (3) Developed more practical approaches to adult basic education through discussions with other participants and from field trips; (4) Refreshed their memories on known ABE materials as well as being introduced to new materials; (5) Gained information and materials in programmed learning and other innovative approaches in ABE; and (6) Fulfilled individual objectives in the program.
